Equally good and bad
on November 28, 2011
Pros: Gentle on delicate clothes. User-friendly format with many different options for cycles, drying, temperatures, etc. Decent in getting rid of stains. Noise is pretty minimal. Compact size.
Cons: DO NOT get this washer/dryer if you have pets. It has no lint catcher or any mechanism for getting rid of pet fur or other lint. While stains will come off in a cycle, lint and fur will not. Anything fur, fuzz,hair, etc. that is on a piece of clothing before the cycle will be on the piece of clothing when it is finished. I have been forced to spend hours lint rolling every single shirt, sock, etc. by hand before every load of laundry. This never happened with the big industrial washer/dryers I've used before. It's made laundry pretty unbearable for me.
Also, as other people have noted, large loads don't work too well. I've cleaned a king-size comforter in here, and while it came out clean, it was very wrinkly.
Lastly, the "timers" for each load take much longer than they originally state. For instance, "55" minutes ends up being 75-90 minutes, depending on how many clothes are in the cycle.
One last note: your clothes may seem damp at the end of a cycle, but they dry pretty quickly for some reason. If you continue drying your clothes until they're bone dry in this machine, they'll become very, very wrinkled.
